Have you put it on scales to check your loaded weight yet (before you add the w/d)? I assume you plan to put it in the left rear wardrobe? Also be cognizant of your GCVW with your toad too..........

Good luck!

I have not done scales yet, why do you suggest prior to installing a W/D? Correct, left wardrobe where hookups are. The toad is a 1987 Suzuki Samurai, 2100 - 2300lbs curb weight. The towing capacity for my Bounder is 5000lbs.

Given the weight of you toad, you'll just need to be concerned with the 22k chassis weight limit (and the related axle weights).

Not sure of your CCC, but you need to ensure that loaded as you will be traveling, you'll be within that 22k, and that w/d is going to be a substantial weight to add so you need to ensure you have the capacity to add them beforehand.....

Regards

Good tips. Here are the specs below. I think with the fairly light toad and the 148lbs W/D combo, I should be fine? Of course loading up the RV with cargo/goods. I actually bought one of those handheld luggage scales that can measure up to 100lbs. When we officially load it with the junk we want to bring, I plan on weighing and inventorying each item as it goes aboard. Might be a little tedious, but it should be a one time thing and since we have the time to transition from S&B home to MH, it'll be worth it I think.

Ooor maybe I just load up everything I think we will want, then go to a local truck scale and do it all in one go.

MODEL 33C
Wheelbase (inches) 208"
GVWR (lbs) 22,000*
Front GAWR (lbs) 8,000
Rear GAWR (lbs) 15,000
GCWR (lbs) 26,000
Hitch Weight (lbs) 5,000
Tongue Weight (lbs) 500
Fuel Capacity (gal) 80

* The GVWR is equal to or greater than the sum of the (UVW)
unloaded vehicle weight plus the (OCCC) occupant cargo-carrying capacity*

You should also have a posted CCC that shows how much you can carry within the 22k GVWR. But before I would spend the time and effort to add the w/d I would load it up as you would be traveling (or reasonably close) to ensure you will be within the 22k. As a side note, you might want to post something about experiences with those combo w/d units, to see if it is even worth adding at all.

Regards
